If you're going to attempt an armed robbery, you better make sure you're committed to it. This 17-year-old tried to rob Cupid's Corner in Debary, but a store clerk managed to talk him out of it and even got him to fill out an employment application. Of course, she promptly turned over the application, with all of Conner's identifying details, to police.
